I stumbled upon this awesome blog and saw that he was offering up a X-Men Poster Contest. So below is my submission for the contest.
Seeing that the film is set in the 60's during the Cuban Missile Crisis (hence, the rockets in the air) I focused the style around vintage 60's advertising and Cuban poster art.
My favorite part of the piece is the individual X-Men characters, I tried to show each "mutation" of each character.
It was a lot of fun to create and get all the texture right so it looks like a screen printed poster.
